Brought the material, just waiting on getting a computer desk so i can stop using my sewing table and finnaly be able to finish everything.

Because i've started on the kneesocks wig it has been moved to it own place :P

Brought the pattern for the jumper YAY! just waiting on some money to buy the material <3

Got the pattern for the boys trousers, waiting on the pattern for the scanty and kneesocks jackets which will then be teaching my friend how to use.

took my first step towards the cosplay... brought the yellow socks :'D

The fake lip/earrings arrived and then look FABULOUS!!!! *strikes pose*
really comfy to wear :D just waiting on the skull earrings and then I can FINALLY get started YAY!

Studds Arrived for her necklace/Choker :D really can't wait to get properly started on this :D

Trying to figure out what is hanging on the dangly parts of her earrings... so far i've found A heart and a cross (not the one on her lip) the others look like either a key, spade and a diamond but really not sure.

So due to money troubles looks like i may have to make it instead of buy it... eeeeep

So i've brought the outfit and the wig... outfit arrived yesterday needs a a few alterations but nothing major :D just waiting on the wig now!!

So from pictures i've seen prince has red eyes so finding a pair of red contacts will be my first place to start

Thinking these ones

Going to use a white corset underneath to keep it sturdy and fitted

So Over the moon with how everything has turned out so far :P just gotta buy the material and hope the main outfit goes as well!

so the shoes arrived today... YAY!!! i cut the main strap off and decided that i liked the way they look at the moment... so they are stay three straps and brown :P this is mainly for comfort and so that i can wear them even when not cosplaying.

Brought my BF's inuyasha cosplay and sword :D just waiting on them to arrive now as well as my Kagome one.

Really not that long till expo, 2 Months. almost done with most of cosmos's "props" but the problem is I now have to order another cosplay for my BF so that it arrives on time which means pushing the material for cosmos back to the end of next month.... which will leave me 24 days to make it which most of your are like "oh thats fine, thats plenty of time for an unemployed laze about like you"
problem is I'm really slow at working through cosplays as i want them (and especially this one) to be perfect!!
Then again is all else fails i can throw it at my nan and beg her ;)

FINALLY found the perfect pair of Nami shoes for me.... AND I WON THEM!!!! (been outbid on so many good ones)

Just need to wait for them to arrive and hope they ft, If the do I need to cut a few straps off (they have 1 too many) then paint them orange because i'm a perfectionist like that... plus I want orange shoes lol

Went shopping with friends today and got the rest of stuff needed for the props for sailor cosmos :D YAY!!!! tomorrow I shall be painting everything (including some things for friends :D ) then tuesday helping my friend with her wig and hopefully making stuff thats left :D really happy now!

Been testing out ideas for cosmos's brooch finally found out how to make the damn pointed star. just need to get better materials for it :D

Brought the cosplay!!! just have to wait now :D

So I painted the wig hearts and OMG the difference, never realised the Poly hearts were so grey :O, this will make a MUCH better base for the wig hair to sit on.

WHICH I shall be adding tomorrow as it took a very long time for the PVA glue (base coat) and then the Paint to dry as I had to do a side at a time and now it's late and my BF shall be getting home and I doubt very much he wants to be suffocated by hairspray :P So look forward to the Pics of thoose :D

So currently trying to work out the best way to make the staff, I already know it's not going to be easy to transport.

The problem I have is that the cheapest place to buy a long thin wooden/plastic pole is Wickes, which is miles away from where I live...

I already have the Large ball, just need to work out the rough sizes for the smaller ones.

And then theres the star on top.... which is almost impossible to find a nice one in a small enough size (if you look the staff balls and things aren't that big)

Just hope I can manage to make it alright :S

The wig fringe has been cut YAY!!! just starting on the belt now, or at least trying to start on the belt lol procrastination the bane of my life ;)

So I brought the curlers and scissors for the wig yesterday YAY! will probabaly start that on monday when I have the day to myself.

Today the hair slides arrived so just need to make them :')

Then all thats left is the Staff, Shoes which are being finished closer to the time so they don't get ruined and the cosplay itself which means going to the fabric shop :D (2 hour train journey... YAY -.-')

Oh also need make up test... which requires actually owning make up... so yeah lol

Jeans arrived today YAY! They fit perfectly and look great LUCKY! just need to paint the circles on the sides then make the belt... then all thats left is Shoes, log pose and cutting the wig :D oh and possibly making the clima tact.

So found a GREAT bargain in Primark today WOOHOOO nami loves a bargain ;) 8 bangles for £2.50... and one of them a lovely golden one. Perfect for nami IMO

Also brought the scissors to trim the fringe... WISH ME LUCK.

Just waiting on the jeans to arrive, make the belt and paint the top... YAY

YAY I have (almost) all the parts for my cosmos wig!!!

So I WAS going to try to put it up like pigtails but the problem with the base wif i have is it's kinda thin so instead i'm going to attempt to cut and style it shorter so it's against my head and hardly seen EEEEP!

So all that needs doing on it now is;

1. Cut and style the Fringe/Bangs

2. Cut and Style the rest of the base wig (back and sides leaving some for curly bits on the side)

3. Glue hair extensions onto the hearts (when the extensions arrive)

4. Sew/Glue the Ponytails in place

5. Sew/Glue the hearts on

6. Curl the ends of the ponytail

Wear and ENJOY!!!! soooooo looking forward to it :D

Top for Nami arrived today :D just wondering about the white bit. Sew, Paint or Iron transfer?
